Yes, you can use Proclaim without an internet connection. Proclaim is designed so that your presentation will work on the day you are presenting without a network connection. Ensure the computer on which you will be presenting has the most recent version of your presentation prior to the time of your presentation. This can accomplished in one of two ways: either by syncing it completely on the presentation computer beforehand (when the internet is available), or by backing up and restoring your presentation.
Some non-essential features of Proclaim require a network connection during the service to function:
- Signals: without internet your congregation will not receive signals from a presentation that is on air.
- Proclaim Remote: the Proclaim Remote app uses the internet to communicate with the desktop client. Therefore, both applications must have an active connection to the internet.
- On-screen Bible quick screen: the OSB references require a network connection to contact and receive information from Biblia. If your presentation already has OSB or regular Bible service items, they will play normally without a network connection.
Note: Bible references added to your presentation with a network connection will still appear even if you have no Internet. However, adding a new reference will require a network connection to retrieve the passage text.
